Expert treatment for complex foot problems
From first thing in the morning until last thing at night, your feet are used many thousands of times for a variety of movements and activities. If a foot is damaged, through injury or disease, it can have a significant impact on many different aspects of life. For example, it may:
In addition to the physical impact, long-term or severe pain or stiffness in a foot can also affect your mental and emotional health.
If you’re struggling with a serious foot problem, whether new or longer-term, it can be reassuring to have rapid access to an expert for accurate diagnosis and any treatment required.
Many people with a foot problem should first consult a Consultant Podiatric Surgeon for a range of common foot problems, or more complex issues and those requiring surgery.
Here at BMI The Blackheath Hospital, our Consultant Podiatric Surgeons provide treatment for all complex foot problems in order to let you get back to enjoying the activities you love as soon as possible.
Some of the conditions and treatments our Consultant Podiatric Surgeons can help with are:
Please note that the list above is intended as a guide only and is not an exhaustive list of the conditions managed or comprehensive treatments provided by our Consultant Podiatric Surgeons.
Whether you are an elite athlete facing a career-defining foot injury or a non-athlete struggling with increased pain and stiffness in your foot, we can help you.
When you first meet with your Consultant here at The Blackheath Hospital, they’ll talk with you about the problem you’re having with your foot. Everybody is different and your medical story is an important part of the process. Your Podiatric surgeon will want to know things like:
They’ll examine your foot and ankle, moving them around as they assess the range of motion and flexibility you have. This physical examination helps them to see when you experience pain in the foot and whether you have any level of stiffness or reduced motion within the joints.
Sometimes, additional tests are needed to help with diagnosis. We have private CT, MRI, Ultrasound and X-ray capability here, so these can all be arranged quickly and conveniently for you. On-site Consultant Radiologists (doctors who specialise in interpreting diagnostic images) work closely with your Podiatric Surgeon when needed to assist diagnosis.
Your Consultant Podiatric Surgeon will help ensure you get the treatment you need as soon as possible. This may be surgical or non-surgical (conservative). There are a number of good conservative treatments available that can be very effective in some cases, like physiotherapy, rest and pain relief medication. If these do not help, or stop being as effective, you may need surgery to treat the problem.
There are a range of surgical options for foot problems, from a type of keyhole surgery known as arthroscopy through to “open” surgery often used to repair a nasty fracture.
Your Consultant Podiatric Surgeon will discuss any surgical options with you fully so that can make an informed choice about whether to proceed with any recommended treatment.
